... disease and asthma, and each condition is worstening.I am only 33 and the average age is 70 and it's increased in males.My question is; is this considered a disability, are there programs that will help me with medical attention? Plus my mental state is also getting worst I have a 1 year old and the thought of getting cancer before I can afford to detect it, and it being too late. I am scared all these are in the esophogus area. I also have a lump at the bottom right side of my throat. PLease help me find help. Thanks. Distraught!

There is a Johns Hopkins' Barrets Esophagus online forum with numerous pages of recent questions and answers and posts going back to prior months and years with a lot of information.. The people who post are very knowledgable with references and guidance. I myself recently had barretts esophagus with early stage cancer and did a lot of research to find a way to save my esophagus. I am now cancer free and clear of barrets with outpatient procedures at UC Irvine, Orange County CA.. I hope this will give you some encouragement. You probably are in an early stage so there is time for you to find a way to get help. Good luck and keep trying to get answers. A Friend
